    I live near Little Saigon and Little Korea and have many choices. Some, quite spectacular. (With a price to match.) On the day in question, it was just a simple jasmine green tea.

    I love my MFLB. Lost all parts except for the main unit a few years ago. The new parts was not very expensive to exchange. This is also something of an advantage in favour of this beautiful vape :)

    Also, nice video. You've earned yourself another subscriber ☮

    Launch Box is super underrated! Hard to find a more stealthy instantaneous vape. With proper technique it hits HARD too

    Not sure it's underrated? Haven't it gotten the recognition it deserves? I've only heard good things about it ( well, from people who knows what they talk about ).

    Yeah much love for the ole LB as it stands the test of time! Six years in and my original still rocks my world.
    I mostly use it native style or with a shorty mouth piece while out in public. Very stealthy, very effective.

    In my experience, many people that are new to vaping usually avoid the launch box because of it's learning curve and look. Most gravitate towards vaporizers that look more "techy" like the Pax, CFX, Flowermate, etc. That's all i meant by underrated.

    The MFLB was the first vape I ever tried and while it is quite different from smoking it still got me hooked.

    So the MFLB is the first vape I hit in 2018. No reason to retire it, still works great. Yeah! :clap:

    Hi everyone!
    I am proud to say I am now the owner of the magic flight launch box!
    Totally in love with it. Went a bit crazy and ended up buying lots of spares and accessories like the finishing grinder and storage box extra charger and the power adaptor!
    Only thing I missed out on is the orbiter.

    Is there any point getting the orbiter in everyone's opinion?

    So have to say....totally in love with it. I have seen this in the past and always dismissed it as it looked complicated but for some reasons few weeks back I just bought one randomly haha.

    I wanted to ask, are people using two grinders? One to grind and then use the finishing grinder?
    Or have ppl just one grinder to grind finely; if So, what is it?

    Any tips and tricks for me?
    This is so cool I'm really liking this box.
    How are ppl storing everything and is there any aftermarket accessories mflb don't sell?

    Sorry for so many questions! Just thought is get all in one post.

    Oh and I got the monocle edition for dry herb as the design is just stunning.
    (Can't get concentrate in UK)

    If you have the finishing grinder, that should produce the best grind consistency (the finer the better).

    As for tips, i would say experiment with draw techniques. Drawing in a series of soft puffs or pulses can produce different results than one long slow draw.

    Shake between draws to evenly cook yor herb.

    Avoid over charging your batteries too!

    Oh nice! That's looks like a sweet setup! What is the device?
    I'd be interested to hear how the orbiter
    performs with the mflb

    Avoid overcharging how?
    I do shake, but I'm getting trouble getting a even avb all around. Seems like just the bottom is being used up and all the material at the top is still green.
    I have mastered the draw technique which I was most worried about. Mflb helped me alot with this.
    I have 2 grinders. One to grind the material but it's consistency is thick and clumpy which I then put in to the finishing grinder to grind finely.
    Just wondering if there was just one grinder to use to grind evenly
    Thanks again!

    You can avoid over charging by not letting your batteries die completely and taking them off the charger soon after they reach a full charge.

    It is difficult to get a completely even "roast" but i've found that small loads come out more even than full trenches.

    There is the magic flight 2 piece "nano grinder" that produces a fine grind from the start. But its not as fine as the finishing grinder from what I hear.

    Yes, you might be shaking, but not enough. One of the major keys you know........

    You're right, this is a (modest power) conduction vape. Only the screen gets hot and that no so hot as it is. Heat is at a premium. Only dry herb directly in contact with the herb can vape.

    The key to MFLB is understanding its limitations I think. That starts with power. Don't waste it evaporating moisture that could otherwise make vapor.
    • Keep your herb well cured (dry) and finely ground
    • Keep your batteries freshly charged
    • don't load over the rails
    • let vapor form before sucking it away gently
    • and shake, shake, shake between hits.
    I find loads of about 1/8 gram (.125) about right. A long stem can be helpful learning as you can watch the vapor delivery. You really need to experiment with the little guy.

    Enjoy it, there's a reason so many of us have and keep them.

    I don't let the batteries die as I ended up buying many haha, but I thought the charger stops charging when they are full.
    I will try smaller trenches and see what's happens.

    Oh I think I got the small grinder as well but not tried it yet!
    I do like the finishing grinder it's so fine.

    Think need to start shaking more and More!
    That is something I have not been doing.
    I also need to try smaller trenches as I'm going in big so need to reduce!

    Anyone use mflb with the orbiter?
    I have the glass stem, are the other stems worth it? Dart and wood ones?

    The setup is a Da Buddha vape with an LSV heater cover paired wit the Orbiter using the long LSV stem as the final piece. In this configuration it gets used mostly as dry piece for a Nano minus the silicone hose.
    I use the MFLB without the stem so I can best regulate the heat via the draw rate, with the Orbiter I have to watch for more visual and taste cues because the extra air path and water chilled out the heat cues. Do you find the Box too hot, if just adding some hose might be worth a try.

    I thought it was that. Looks cool but I need something small and portable.
    I don't find it warm at all. I use the glass stem and it's just perfect.
    Just getting used to it and altering the temp with my draw rate.
    It's cool how it's just a box but there is so much knowledge involved. More than I thought lol

    i miss my mflb, let someone borrow it and they just left it somewhere (long story, guy is a prick but whatever). I may want another one, are they still pretty expensive?

    They were just $59 for a bare unit for holiday deals. Maybe email them see if they can work something out for you.

    I finally broke the trench on my launch box after 3 years. I decided to make a tiny "burial" video for it. Here it is:

    I broke out the magic flight, and the batteries just died and don't hold a charge even though last time I used them around 2 years ago they were fairly new.
